What is Android.?

Android was originally founded by Andy Rubin in 2003 under the company name Android, Inc. It is correct that he previously worked for Apple and Microsoft, however he quit Apple, Inc. at about 15 years before the original iPhone was launched. At 2005, Google finished their acquisition of Android, Inc. Hence, Google becomes the author of Android. Two years after the acquisition of Android, Google launched the Open Handset Alliance (OHA). which lists companies, especially mobile device manufacturers, which ships some of their devices with Google’s Android OS (with Google Play Services). This leads to the fact that Android is not just owned by Google, but also all members of the Open Handset Alliance (including Samsung, Lenovo, Sony and other companies who makes Android devices).
